decomposed manure

What are the characteristics of a well decomposed manure?


  • A well-decomposed manure is characterized by its dark color, crumbly texture, and earthy smell. It should be free of any large, recognizable pieces of plant material, and should easily break down when worked into the soil. It should also be free of pathogens, weed seeds, and harmful chemicals, making it safe to use as a soil amendment for growing crops. Additionally, a well-decomposed manure should have a balanced nutrient content, providing adequate levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other essential micronutrients for plant growth.
